School Yearbook Collection In Memory of Ryan Taylor who passed away on September 25, 2006.  Ryan was an esteemed and popular genealogist who had worked at his chosen field since his teen age years.  He published and lectured extensively in his profession, gaining a reputation for his research capabilities and lively speaking style.  The year book collection is a project that Ryan was promoting before his death, and a project that we would like to continue in his memory, as they hold a wealth of information for all genealogical researchers.Can you help complete the Lambton County collection of school yearbooks?  They will be housed at the Lambton Room in Wyoming, and thus available for all to research.  It is our intention to keep a current list of these yearbooks on our website. If anyone stumbles across any of these books at yard sales, auctions, etc., or have copies they would like to donate, we would be pleased to add them to the collection.  A book plate has been produced by the Ontario Genealogical Society, and it will be placed in donated books, recognizing the donor.  Ryan columns 2002-2006 can be found at
